The Simplest Pleasures are the Best

Especially when you haven’t got forty or fifty dollars to take everyone out to a movie.

Like … uh … a certain someone who lives in my apartment.

So stay in with me, pour yourself a vat of that no-name cola from the gas station, make a swimming pool’s worth of that cheap-ass popcorn you bought at the bulk food store, tell the family it’s bonding time so they better get in here OR ELSE and enjoy this 100% free presentation of that cinematic classic, Raiders of the Lost Ark, in Lego. Like you’ll even notice a difference in the acting.

Where I live, summer is very much here already, even though technically it doesn’t arrive until the end of the month. What does that mean? It means really sunny, pretty hot, and awfully dry. It also means that I change my beauty routine.

Well, change meaning I try not to wear a whole lot of makeup, because I will just sweat it all off by the end of the day. But, the one thing that I cling onto like a liferaft is lipcolor. I just feel naked without lipcolor of some kind. In the summer, I am usually on the go and don’t feel like messing with a tube of heavy lipstick, and I am not a huge fan of lipgloss.

There is, however, a very happy medium in Stila’s Clear Color Moisturizing Lip Tint. It is a nice sheer wash of color, and I think it would actually be hard to go wrong with any of the shades because the color is so sheer.  But not so that it looks like you don’t have anything on, because what would be the point? It lasts a surprisingly long time for something so light. I use coral, the shade featured below. I realize the color looks a bit alarming, but it looks nothing like that on your lips.

Better than the Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer in my opinion, (although I have to admit it is hard to beat Burt’s on the price) Stila’s Clear Color is very creamy yet not heavy feeling on the lips. It is very slim and fits anywhere, has SPF 8, aaaaaand smells like marshmallows. Mmmmmm, marshmallows….
